    E Smooth Commercial from Thailand

    The language spoken is Thai. Thank goodness for the subtitles. There are 4 parts but it is hilarious. Somewhat like Shaw's Pygmalion. Here are the links to the Youtube videos of it. Part 1: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgF-2DeTtc8"...

    Coolant for GM-DAT cars

    I'm using Prestone's 5/150 Dexcool on my Aveo. No problems. Wouldn't be much with your Optra. The coolant system is pretty well designed. Can't say the same for the Vivant.
